and broadening opportunity for the middle class is shrinking our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. and for nearly two years now, i've been fighting for such a plan -- one that would reduce our deficits by $4 trillion over the next decade, which would stabilize our debt and our deficit in a sustainable way for the next decade. that would be enough not only to stop the growth of our debt relative to the size of our economy, but it would make it manageable so it doesn't crowd out the investments we need to make in people and education and job training and science and medical research -- all the things that help us grow. now, step by step, we've made progress towards that goal. over the past two years, i've signed into law about $1.4 trillion in spending cuts. two weeks ago, i signed into law more than $600 billion in new revenue by making sure the wealthiest americans begin to pay their fair share. when you add the money that we'll save in interest payments on the debt, all together that adds up to a total of about $2.5 trillion in deficit reduction over the past two years -- not cou
of savings from spending on health care and revenues from closing loopholes, we consult the deficit issue without sacrificing our investments in things like education that are going to help us grow. it turns out the american people agree with me. they listened to an entire year's debate over this issue, and they made a clear decision about the approach they prefer. they do not think it is fair to ask a senior to pay more for his or her health care or a scientist to shut down like that saving research so that a multi millionaire investor can take less in tax rates then a second trip -- and a secretary. they do not think it is smart to protect and as corporate loopholes and tax breaks for the wealthiest americans rather than rebuild roads and schools or help manufacturers bring jobs back to america. they want us to get our books in order in a balanced way where everyone pulls their weight, everyone does their part. that is what i want as well. that is what i have proposed. we can get it done, but we're going to have to make sure people are looking at this irresponsible way, rather than just

proclaimed his state's huge budget deficit had disappeared. but some politicians in the golden state are skeptical. newshour correspondent spencer michels sat down with brown in san francisco. his report is a co-production with our colleagues at kqed-san francisco, and begins with some background on the fiscal troubles and the budget fix. >> reporter: california's sorry financial state and cuts made to health and welfare programs have prompted nearly nonstop demonstrations at the state capital in recent times. those protests got going four years ago when california and its then governor republican arnold schwarzenegger faced a staggering budget deficit of $42 billion. the recession, built-in spending, a large population in need of state services like health and welfare, a limit on property taxes, plus republican legislators' refusal to raise taxes created a dilemma in the world's ninth largest economy. with budget cuts coming like clock work, the state's college and university systems declined in offerings and in reputation. schools suffered cutbacks in personnel and programs. servic
to approach the deficit and issues like immigration and gun safety and i don't think he's going to be very frustrated if washington is completely divorced from the reality in the country, so he's going to seek common ground. he's going to find every way he can to compromise, but he's going to be pretty clear and we're also going to bring the american people more into the debate than the first term. >> what's the big difference in the president obama who took the oath four years ago and the one that will take the oath tomorrow? >> there's atmospheric differences. we had an economy collapsing all around us and he was a first term president and still putting together his team and agenda and cabinet and still the economy is too weak but recovering and the question is right now building on that as opposed to simply trying to stem the bleeding. there's a big difference and i think the experience of the office, as you know, you know, that helps a lot and so i think he does have even more sure-footedness in his approach. >> it can become a bit of a burden. historians write about the second term cu
in nearly the past three years, and the whole fiasco added to the deficit. host: after the news conference yesterday, house speaker john boehner responded with this statement -- " what are your thoughts on this? if the debt ceiling negotiable. some quick comments -- remember, you can post your comments on twitter. the first phone call is from maryland, a democratic caller, jill. caller: i don't believe the debt ceiling is negotiable. it is kind of ridiculous that the money is already owed, so why are we not going to pay what is owed to other people? if people have made investments, the bills have to be paid. i find it ridiculous that people in congress don't want to pay what is already owed. it does not make sense. host: here is the wall street journal this morning. caller: well, if you're asking me if that's true, i think there definitely needs to be somewhat of a compromise as far as spending cuts, but that is not an easy issue, because spending cuts mean job losses. it's not an easy thing to say a president will say we will stop paying the bills too. so there has to be compromised rehab
the debt and deficit reduction at an event hosted by the u.s. chamber of commerce. that's at 8:30 ian. eastern. and at 1 p.m. eastern, the national immigration forum holds a news conference. speakers are scheduled to include tom donohue of the u.s. chamber and former commerce secretary carlos gutierrez. >> he had been talking about this dream that he had had. he had talked about it for years, you know? the american dream, and that it had become his dream. he had been in detroit just a few months before, and he had talked about i have a dream that america will someday realize these principles of the declaration of independence. so, um, i think he was just inspired by that moment. >> sunday on "after words," claiborne carson recalls his journey as a civil rights activist participating in the 1963 march on washington to prominent historian and editor of martin luther king jr.'s papers. it's part of three days of booktv this weekend. monday featuring books on president obama and martin luther king jr. >> now an update on preparations for president obama's inauguration on monday. represent

[applause] >> next, a discussion about gun violence and gun control measures. chicago mayor rahm emanuel was joined by ohio representative stephen latourette at an event hosted by the university of chicago's institute of politics. former nbc nightly news anchor tom brokaw moderated the discussion. it's about an hour and 15 minutes. >> thank you all very much for being here. i've been in this business for a long time, a half a century, and there are occasions in american life when one issue kind of galvanizes the country. and it seems to me that as we begin this year that guns, violence and can their place in american live
to cut down a dangerous deficit. why can't anyone in dc come to the table with a simple obvious proposal? >> obama: if we combine a balanced package of savings from spending on healthcare and revenues from closing loopholes we can solve the deficit issue. >> john: joining me now is wahini varra, california politics reporter for the wall street journal. thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you. >> does that mean that he's doing things right? >> he had decent approving ratings after a while. but after this effort to pass taxes, his approval ratings went up. he's more popular now than he has ever been in california, a little bit surprisingly. >> when you consider all the negative stereotypes that we heard groaning up. when i was growing up he was governor moon beam, and how unbalanced he was, quite the opposite of now. governor brown did a whole lot of cutting, are the people of california glossing over that? >> i think they may be. the most recent thing that happened was that californians raised taxes after jerry brown passed it. it's been in the news. that's what people are aware of.
political divisions in this country. there's vast support out there for balanced deficit reduction investments in education and manufacturing, immigration reform, gun safety. so on the issues the president intends to really push and focus on, there's massive support in the country even among republicans. let's not lose sight of that, and that's why we're going to do a better job in the second term-- while we're going to do all we can to work with congress and negotiate, to also make sure the american people are connected to what's going on here. i think to really get the kind of change here in washington the american people are going to demand it. but there is really, i think consensus around eye lot of the issues around the country >> what about the idea the republicans have said they will go along with the three-month extension on the debt ceiling increase? are you going to be-- does that help? >> well, it's helpful that they have now dropped their demand, that the only way they're going to pay the country's billes, they themselves racked up, would be to extract some concessions.
, as we mentioned earlier, getting the deficit on a sustainable path, trying to accomplish some of his investment agenda. obviously guns are going to be a part of the agenda. right now the main thing is to kind of stick at that visionary level. >> chuck, the president had a pretty good day for his first term on friday before it even started when republicans said they would break that principle of not raising the debt limit unless they had dollar for dollar spending cuts. tell me what you think that means for the resolution of the debt limit fight, which republicans are going to put that proposal on the floor on wednesday, and the president's prospect for resolving what has looked like an excruciating fight. >> it will certainly give us a nice market backdrop which is a nice thing to start off the administration's second term. i guess add 60% gain in the dow the first three years and 10% in the second -- in the last year, but i think that really what that means is that we have a good start, but it's all designed on the republican side to try to compel the democrats to come forward with
and dignity. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit area but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. [cheers] [applause] we remember the lessons of our past. twilight years were spent in poverty and parents of a child with a disability have nowhere to turn. we do not believe that in this country that freedom is reserved for the lucky or happiness for the few. we recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, they may face a job loss or sudden illness or a home swept away in a terrible storm. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things strengthen us. [cheers] [applause] they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. [cheers] [applause] we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all prosperity we will respond to the
or the highway either. we have a huge spending deficit problem. they were considering for well over a week the notion of just mint inging a trillion dollar c and calling it good. the federal reserve said that's phony. that doesn't work. and the treasury department on saturday said okay, you are right. we won't go that route. we need serious proposals from the president and it is not just the congress. it is -- we got to work together to solve the country's problems. >> let me -- let me split off debt limit here. are you willing to do the debt limit on its own without any -- president say he's not going to negotiate, are you willing to pass a clean debt limit? >> you know, i think passing a clean debt limit is problematic for the american people as well as for the congress and the country. i think that we should find common ground here to look at spending reforms for the long term to gettous a path to reducing debt and deficit. i think we should look at current spending reductions that could take place and in ways we can grow the economy. i would like to see us work together on this matter
in spending in exchange for raising the borrowing limit. he says trimming the budget deficit should be a different discussion. >> to even entertain the idea of this happening, of the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. >> house speaker john boehner responded to this by saying the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time. you can see the battle lines there very clearly. are you in hawaii or headed there? think twice. beware of getting in the water. check out this video. that's right, sharks near oahu's yokohama beach, two sharks were spotted swimming very, very dangerously close to the shore. i hope that guy's feet are not in the water. >> wow, that is super shallow. >> if steve stockman was serious he would have mentioned secession. secession is the line -- >> that's so old. >> i'm just saying. >> don't open any can of worms when i need to go to a break. >>> polls are showing more americans support tougher gun control laws. is there any common ground in washington, d.c.? we'll talk with
to get the deficit down. we're going to do a budget this year and it will have revenues in it and our republican colleagues better get used to that fact. martha: promise, promises right? they will do a budget this year. we haven't seen one in how long? stuart varney the anchor of "varney & company". how many years has it been now? >> i believe it is 3 1/2 years. we go through the tax debate. we thought we got higher taxes on the rich and it was over, not so. senator schumer and fellow democrats are proposing yet higher taxes on the rich, more taxes on oil and gas companies and taxes on profits that american corporations makeover seas. so that is three big areas where taxes are going to go up. all of this we are told is going to be in the new budget which the senate has to pass in about a three-month period. so, here they come, higher taxes. martha: yeah. i mean, stuart, as you point out the argument that is being waged now about really tax rerecall follow was something that conservatives offered the first time around as a good way to sort of change the system and bring in more revenue
, mentioning some of the issues he wants to tackle. gun control, deficit reduction. as you said, waiting on the big details until the state of the union address. neil: you mentioned finding common ground. we may have gotten a hint on that when republicans said they would look at eight debt ceiling it ascension back ago, probably, three months. what do you make of that? don: they would be blamed, roundly, thoroughly if the country went into some kind of default. the strategy, as you have been reporting, has been to try to take this issue off the table and then fight the battle over spending cuts when you have a sequestration cuts scheduled to start march 1. the current resolution running the government also running out into her three months from now. as well as, the debt ceiling having to be raised yet again. republicans hope this is when they will be able to get the leverage to push spending cuts and entitlement reform. neil: you know, peter, what we look at -- how does that decide? there is a protocol. sitting in and around that i see ron emanuel sitting close to president clinton, how
't have a deficit and debt crisis the way we do right now. let's be fair about the facts. we are in a debt crisis. however, when something like this happens, it's an exception to the rule. these people are hurting. they need the help of the federal government, and that's what we're going to deliver today. the bottom line is we're going to move forward and get this done. >> you know, i have been blessed to get to know some of the really good people up in your borough like teddy atlas and your borough president. they're doing great work. tell us how bad it is. we're looking at pictures of the people under water during the flood. have just been devastated. i saw some of that stuff on your own island of staten island a couple weeks ago, it was really rough. >> it's horrendous. this is a war zone. let me be clear, don't forget about -- you see homes crushed. you see people's personal belongings wiped out to sea, but there's also emotional scars that you cannot see. just this past weekend i had a mother tell me her children are deathly afraid when it rains because they think there's going to be
to get our debt to g.d.p., our deficit to g.d.p. down around 3%, which is the basis of all economists left, right and center all agree on the areas we can begin to grow as a country. and as my grandfather used to say with grace of god and goodwill of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail now between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling and we may meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over 10 years in the long-term deficit and to put us on that path. talk didn't come here to about any of those important subjects today, because as important as they all are today we have a more urgent and immediate call and that is how to deal with the epidemic of gun violence in america. you all know the statistics better than anyone so i'm not going to repeat them. on that score, i owe an incredible debt of gratitude to you at the head table and those of you in the room. i know we don't have unanimity in this ballroom nor do we in any ballroom, but we all acknowledge that we have to do something. we have to act. and i hope we all agree, there is a
programs at a time when everyone in washington is talking about debt and deficits, he threw down the gauntlet and made clear, i won the election, i will stand for these following things. he did not go in great detail. he does that next month. he made clear he is coming out where he is and he will come out swinging and he thinks he will get a lot done. we will see. >>neil: before i leave, much was made that the president has not walked much so far, what do you make of that? compared to last inaugural. >>reporter: he will be making that town as you say at the treasury department in a block or so from where we are right now, at lafayette park. look, they are always careful about not having the president walk too far. based on the cheers he is getting close because people here, outside the white house, they have been waiting if hours, since early this morning, 7:00 or 8:00 a.m. lining up here, so you get the idea after 4:00 p.m. eastern time, folks are cold, folks are tired, they are very excited to see the newly inaugurated president, re-elected president coming out here. as i menti
republicans have never been comfortable with social security and medicare. they use deficits and debt reduction as an excuse to chip away at it. but it is not about deficits and debt. it's about their discomfort with the programs themselves. >> and it's about dealing with the challenges right now. one of the most compelling parts of the speech as i sat there listening and watching is when he said with all of the arguments, we must act now. listen to this. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time. but it does require us to act in our time. >> act in our time. and not just get in these long unending debates. martin luther king used to call it the paralysis of analysis. >> we may will be coming to the end of one. with medicare and social security and medicaid. what was so striking about the speech yesterday was that obama -- the lack of an olive branch to republicans that we've heard from him before. when you talk about the summer of 2011, he was talking openly about willing potentially to have a deal that included some mod
would be able to reduce the deficit by $150 billion. not a bad idea. and then if you could do all this and would only cost the average driver less than $1 per week per car, would that be a reasonable burden to impose? so i'm floating the idea. we are beginning discussions with senator mark warner of virginia. he was part of the gang of six, gang of eight. we are encouraged by what we're hearing from him. chairman bill shuster in the house came to our meeting in pittsburgh in november, and he said, listen, folks, we know that the central question congress will have to address next year is revenue. we are open to ideas. no guarantee that they can pass anything. but bill shuster is open to any and all ideas. so what i'm asking you to do is to join us in the battle that lies ahead this next couple of years and demand that congress provide long-term funding for transportation. you know, the big issue that every member of congress is concerned about is with deficits, long-term fiscal viability of the country and cutting spending and raising revenue, that combination is what people seem
deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. >> bill: so the question -- so why should the president entertain this notion that the debt ceiling which republicans voted for 19 times under george w. bush without a peep, you know, why should he entertain the notion that suddenly this is a matter of big negotiations? >> well, he's trying to say that he shouldn't but unfortunately the house republicans have the majority in congress. unfortunately for him, so when he says he doesn't want to debate it and negotiate over it, he is running up against the fact that people who have the power in the house do want to debate it and that can cause problems. he certainly is pushing this idea here to try to remove this from the realm of what he wants and the american people see as rational debate. he used a lot of words yesterday that were very strong to try to make people see this as what he called an absurd way of approaching this. he talked about this being like holding a gun to your head or ransom. this
to overload the agenda but in addition everything he wants to do and obviously the debt and deficit he will have several battles with congress over that but gun control, he will try to take advantage newtown has happened and perhaps caused a tippingpoint in public attitudes and he will push that very aggressively. shepard: senator chuck schumer, the chairman of joint congressional committee of presidential ceremonies with opening remarks. >> welcome to the capitol and this celebration of our great democracy. now this -- [cheers and applause] this is the 57th inauguration of an american president and no matter how many times one witnesses this event, its simplicity, its inate majesty and most of all its meaning, that say yesterday, yet cautious trusting of power from wee we the people to our chosen leader never fails to make our heart beat faster as it will today with the inauguration of president barack h. obama!. [applause] now we know that we would not be here today were it not for those who stand guard around the world to preserve our freedom. to those in our armed forces, we offer
is willing to talk about deficit reduction, perhaps modest reduction to healthcare spending. as long as it comes with curbing loopholes and tax reductions for wealthier individuals. congress should just do it. back to you. connell: let's bring in dylan glenn. former advisor to george w bush. rich said that republicans have reasons for not having this meeting today. the president is standing back and think i am not negotiating on this and the republicans are all over the map. >> i do not think that this is a big deal. i do not see that as a big issue. what is coming out of this weekend retreat is far more important. connell: i would like to be a fly on the wall for that. >> also what is important is to remember how we got here. he has run trillion dollar deficits for the past four years of his administration. you have to pass a budget in the united states senate. he will be doing his sort of constitution getting a budget up to the congress. this is a challenge. we have to have a clear look at how we can reduce spending in this country. connell: whenever the limit is actually reached a
thought their one idea, david, was cutting the deficit. >> that's -- they say that's the case, but it really is they want to just talk about spending cuts as if that is going to help the economy. and any mainstream economist now tells you that you may have to do that in some ways for long-term deficit implications but that's not good in the short run. even simpson/bowles say don't cut so fast. >> and just to be clear, it's not at all clear that they actually have coherent plans for anything they're suggesting. they have sort of hand waving spending cuts, entitlement reform without really writing down a specific path to get there. >> incredible. david corn and jared bernstein, gentlemen, thank you so much. stay with us. we'll be right back. what do we want to build next ? that's the question. every day. when you have the most advanced tools, you want to make something with them. something that helps. helps safeguard our shores. helps someone see through a wall of fire. helps those nowhere near the right doctor stand a chance. ... feeling in the extremities ? no. technology can
politicians and the commanders on the ground are creating a large deficit of trust. after "rolling stone" interview in which mcchrystal slammed obama and members of the administration, he was forced to resign. he said he did not end as he would have wished. today he says he has moved on with his life and is now free to speak his mind. >> afghanistan is hard. it's always been hard. if you study their history, it's never anything but complex and difficult. >> i spent a career carrying typically an m-16 and later an m-4 carbine. i personally don't think there is any need for that kind of weaponry on the streets, and particularly in and around the schools in america. i like the fact that chuck hagel has had his feet in the mud as a soldier. i like the fact that he's had a lot of background. >> joining me now is the former top commander in afghanistan, retired general stanley mcchrystal. he has a brand-new memoir called "my share of the task." general, nice to see you. >> good to see you, chuck. >> we have heard you on a number of topics. it was interesting on the assault weapon. i want to st
damaging to our economy. i think it would actually add to our deficit, because it will impede growth. >> reporter: another more immediate political fight for the president, confirming his pentagon nominee, chuck hagel, a republican, who got a boost on "meet the press" sunday from former republican secretary of state, colin powell, who used the occasion to take a larger, deeper shot at the gop. >> there's also a dark -- a dark vein of intolerance of some parts of the party. what do i mean by that? what i mean by that is, they still sort of look down on minorities. how can i evidence that? when i see a former governor say that the president is shuckin' and jivin'. that's a racial era slave term. >> reporter: now, brian, the issue of the lack of diversity in the president's second-term appointment so far came up at the press conference today, and the president simply asked for more time, defended his record of diversity in the first term and said wait until he's finished with all of his appointments. >> chuck todd on the north lawn of the white house for us tonight. chuck, thanks. >>> o
